Aaages ago I told you all about the OPI Pirates of the Caribbean nail polish collection and a few weeks ago AndyLou showed you her OPI Plank’s a Lot nail polish swatch, well now I have a two more of the Pirates of the Caribbean nail polish collection to show you – Skull & Glossbones nail polish and Stranger Tides nail polish.

OPI Skull and Glossbones nail polish from the Pirates of the Caribbean collection

OPI Skull and Glossbones nail polish

OPI Skull & Gloss bones nail polish is a super pale chalky taupe nail polish and much to my surprise I actually really like it! I definitely didn’t think that I would like this colour from the promo pics and from seeing it in the bottle and the only reason I ended up with it is beacause I bought the OPI Pirates of the Caribbean mini nail polish collection.

It’s a beautifully unusual nail polish – I don’t own any other colour like this in my *ahem* fairly extensive nail polish collection. I have on 3 coats of nail polish which gave me a perfect opaque finish.

Hmmm, so … next is OPI Stranger Tides nail polish. This is like the dirty, yellowing cousin of Skull & Glossbones… I really just don’t get this colour. Similarly to Skull & Glossbones, this polish is a really pale slightly chalky/ pastelly nail polish, but the colour is just strange! It’s a sort of pale avocado green colour and I can’t imagine it would be flattering on anyone!

On the plus side Stranger Tides nail polish has a fantastic texture and finish – perfectly opaque and glossy, but that’s not enough to win me over with that colour!

OPI Skull & Glossbones and OPI Stranger Tides are two of four mini nail polishes in the OPI Pirates of the Caribbean nail polish collection. The other two colours are OPI Plank’s a Lot and OPI Sparrow Me the Drama, and I’ll make sure to swatch them and post the results asap!
